Year 6 HNA: useful health messages

General Health

Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, after breakfast and before going to bed.

Remember to visit your dentist every six months.

Young people should visit the optician every 2 years for a free eye check where they get a free eye test at any opticians.

Please talk to your doctor about your hearing concerns.

It is important to wear sun cream during the summer months, not just on hot sunny days. This is because the sun can burn your skin even on a cloudy or cool day.

If you have had an asthma check in the last year, you should carry your reliever inhaler at all times.

Please make sure you attend all your hospital appointments.

Remember to carry your auto injector with you at all times.


It’s important to eat three balanced meals a day. Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks and snacks.

Energy drinks can be high in sugar and are best avoided.

If you are worried or unhappy about something, the best thing you can do is to tell a trusted grown up as they are usually really good at helping to sort worries out.

It is important to be physically active for at least an hour every day.

Experts tell us that smoking is bad for our health.

Getting a good night’s sleep will help you to stay healthy and achieve at school.

Emotional Health

Remember that everyone can feel anxious, trying some deep breathing when you start to feel anxious could help. If you are suffering from feelings of anxiety or worry a lot of the time, you can always go and tell a trusted grown up and see your doctor.

Social Media

Social media can be fun but remember to give yourself a break from it and keep yourself safe online.


Keeping safe on the roads is important. Always remember to wear a helmet and reflective clothing when riding a bike. Look and listen when crossing a road and be aware of the traffic around you.
